3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml/22oz bottle bought at Firefly in Vancouver. Poured into a curved pint glass with a good white head that diminished fairly rapidly, although leaving lace on the glass. Clear amber with moderate carbonation. Fruity aroma, detecting the grapefruit from the Centennial and some pomegranate. Taste starts off sweet, malty, and fruity; finishing citrusy bitter. Medium-bodied, getting somewhat syrupy as it warms up. Warming from the alcohol that’s less apparent when the beer is cooler. Overall, I found this to be an interesting beer that defies easy stylistic characterization. I’d like to try it with food, like a pomegranate-marinated broiled or roast chicken.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Clear amber color, small white head that settles quickly. Aroma of booze, subtle poms and light citrus. Taste has subtle fruit, but is pretty boozy for a fruit beer.

Tastes like a lollipop got stuck underneath the car seat. Gross. Not a fan.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle, likely at least 4 years old. Misty orange brown with a few edgy bubbles. Nose is toffee, pomegranate, dank basement and green hay. Dull medium body with a watery tang. Taste is stale bubblegum, clove, dried apple and raspberry jam. Obviously past peak but a bit surprising how far its fallen.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at a random Irish pub in midtown. Pours a purple brown CPR with a lot of fizz bubbles. Taste comes off as dish soap in the beginning and end with a hint of fruit. Don't know if it's the booze or if the glass or beer were skunky.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of hard candy, grain, and slight tart fruit. Light amber pour with a slight white head that doesn’t retain. Taste is of caramel, tart fruit, high alpha hops. It’s a dry beer overall considering the 8% abv. I think it goes down very well, with the slight sour of the pomegranates and the bitterness of the hops balancing the sweetness of the malt. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, dry finish.

22oz bottle -
Pomegranate is such a mild tasting fruit that I’m surprised brewers use it in beers. But if they want a mild tasting beer, use a mild tasting fruit!! So this beer is just okay, with nothing inherently awful, but since it lacks character it’s kinda perceived that way. Alcohol, light toffee, fresh bread and just a smidge of fruit. Sweet toffe-like malts, soft hop character with just a shadow of fruit flavor. It could have been cumquats, starfruit on lychee in there...hell, the fruit was so insignifigant there could have been nothing in there for all it know. Kinda lame.

"wouldn’t have been able to pick out pomegranate specifically, but there was a deifinite sweetness to the aroma, and especially the flavor, with some bitterness not from hops as well. pretty good stuff, hard to compare."

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Still yet another 12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Dark amber color with fast fleeting head. Aroma is almost all pomegranate with touches of toffee.
I didn’t have much of an expectation because I already knew how this was going to be. Flavor is mostly pomegranates, candy sugar and a sweet berry finish. This reminds me a lot of the juice “POM” . Oily texture with proper carbonation level. Yep, it is what it is folks. It still is drinkable if you want a fruit beer.
